We compared demographic, medical, and other epidemiologic factors among 113 African-American Alzheimer's disease (AD) patients and 79 African-American vascular dementia (VaD) patients.
The typical background profile of our AD and VaD patients who entered into the study was that of women who were born and raised on farms in the southeastern United States, currently lived in an apartment or home in Chicago with other family members, and were retired, widowed, and had some form of medical insurance.
